Jane Fonda revealed Monday she had a cancerous growth removed from her lip.
The 80-year-old actress, who is in New York promoting Season 4 of Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie,” attended a BUILD Series event with a bandage on her lower lip.
“I just want to explain the bandage. I just had a cancer taken from my lip,” Fonda explained. “I thought it was going to heal in time before I came before you, but it’s fine. I just want to explain it. I don’t normally go around like this.”
She also addressed the diagnosis during an appearance on Howard Stern‘s radio show the same day.
“Hey listen, the world is falling apart, what’s a lip,” Fonda said. “They did [biopsy it]. I’m going to be fine, thanks.”
This isn’t the first time Fonda has experienced a cancer scare, as she removed a small tumor from her breast during a routine checkup back in 2010.
“She’s 100 percent cancer-free,” her rep told People at the time. “She’s completely fine and it’s business as usual for her.”
